Ever wanted to bomb along the runway in an airport fire truck and give a mighty blast on the water cannon?
OK, not in a real life incident of course, but for fun?
Now could be the chance, for move over Playstation and Nintendo Wii, Singapore’s Aviation Academy has installed the world’s first airport fire-fighting vehicle driving simulator.
It comes equipped with a full motion simulator – just like its aircraft simulator cousins – and can simulate day and night driving.
The sim was developed with Chartered Asia Technology Enterprise, a Singapore-based firm that specialises in airport-related technology and services.
The operator is the SAA, a well regarded aviation training body, which trains staff for Changi airport and many other places.
Now all the SAA has to do is hire out any downtime on the machine to let the rest of us have a go!
For more great stuff on fire and rescue vehicles, including plenty of airport wheels, look no further than my colleague Brian Weatherley’s BigLorryBlog.
